Windows Live Spaces.
After witnessing many updates and enduring much scratching of the head,
I feel w.l.s. has evolved from the pretty basic actions one could perform when w.l.s. was first rolled out. Into a most exciting place where one can become lost among its magic.
Who can remember when we were limited to just 2/3rd of the page with which to work with.
The other third was devoted to a column of help topics.
We were restricted to just one html module, suddenly, we were given 10.
Yes these updates are a pain at times, but, I believe without them the w.l.s. experience would not be as enjoyable.
Many people create their space with minimal effort, using only the basic necessities in order to embark on the w.l.s. experience.
This is fine by me, would just like to see a few more spaces that are not only interesting to read but pleasing to the eye also. "A picture says a thousand words."
Yes it takes time to learn ones way around w.l.s. but it can be such fun, learning.
When first we open our spaces we are at a complete loss as to what to do.
It is like a jigsaw, where to start, what goes where, it boggles the brain.
Slowly we learn and quickly we begin to enjoy.
Then we discover other spaces and begin leaving comments.
Soon people leave a comment or two and we begin to receive offers of friendship.
Who among us can not remember the first person to add a comment to your virgin space or your first friend.
This produces a warm feeling inside, knowing real people are viewing your space .
It is always nice to know that , after struggling to create your space and making it as interesting as you can.
That someone somewhere out there is actually reading your blog.
I have noticed that some have deserted w.l.s. and have signed up to other blogging sites. (why I shall never know) Sites like "my space", a much inferior version of w.l.s.
w.l.s. is a special place, and it is you the spacers yourselves that make it so special.
In your own way all who visit this place are special. So many diverse characters, so many different life styles, so many beautiful people.
I am happy and privileged to have met you all.
Purely by coincidence it is the bigest and brightest full Moon tonight for 15 years, so, if you will excuse me I have some howling to do.
. What power is this what invisible force what magic what beauty.
You smile and hearts flutter...
